Join Lorene Eppolite of Cre8tion Crochet and Furls Fiberarts for Part Two of their October CAL, for the Elemental Triangle Cowl.
What's new this week?
If you are just joining us, you'll want to check out Part One of the October CAL here. This week we will be working on finishing the cowl portion of the CAL and we will complete the final edging. By this time next week you should be ready to block your design.
Just like last month we will be opening up an album where you can upload your finished cowls for a chance to enter $250 worth of gift certificates from Furls Crochet.
But wait, there's more...
This month we are offering you additional changes to win gift certificates from Furls. We will be awarding another $250 worth of gift cards to FIVE more people ($50 each). All you have to do is upload a picture of you working on your Elemental Triangle Cowl with ANY Furls product in the image. We will be randomly picking 5 more winners.
So let's get going with Part Two
Ex-sc- Extended Single Crochet
YO, insert hook in st, YO and pull through st (3 loops on hook), YO and draw through one loop, YO and draw through remaining loops.
NOTES for Part Two
- You can now make adjustments to the overall size of your cowl. At the end of Row 17, the sample cowl measures 26” across the top. The sample cowl has one more (modified) repeat (Row 18) and then the joining round is crocheted (Row 19).
- The pattern below includes instructions for the sample cowl, which measures 15” across (after blocking). If you would like your cowl to have a wider opening, please keep in mind that each repeat row will add approximately 1 ½” of width, and approximately 1” of length, to the finished cowl.
- If you wish to make your cowl wider (thus also making the center point longer), simply repeat row 17 as desired. Please repeat row 17 in multiples of 2 to ensure that edging works out. Keep in mind, this will affect the amount of yarn used. You may need to purchase more yarn, or decrease the amount of cowl rows to compensate for making the cowl wider. If you add rows, your st counts will be different for the remainder of the pattern. Each added row will add two additional clusters.
- Pay attention to the changes in the first cluster in subsequent rows.
Row 18: Ch 3 and turn, *YO, insert hook in 3rd ch from hook, YO, pull through stitch, YO, pull through two loops on hook, repeat from * one time more, YO and pull through remaining three loops on hook. Ch 1, 3dc cluster in next ch-2, *ch 1, 3dc cluster in top of the next 3dc cluster, repeat from * for every 3dc cluster from previous row, ch 1, 3dc cluster in the next ch-2, ch 1, 3dc cluster in the top of the ch-4 from previous row. <35>
Row 19: Ch 3 and turn, *YO, insert hook in 3rd ch from hook, YO, pull through stitch, YO, pull through two loops on hook, repeat from * one time more, YO and pull through remaining three loops on hook. Ch 1, *3dc cluster in the top of the next 3dc cluster, Ch 1, repeat from * to end, (for the last cluster you are now working into the top of the cluster, and not the ch 3 as in previous rows) sl st into the top of the first cluster to join into round. Be sure your RS is facing out when you sl st to join. If you added extra rows in Part One, please be sure that you are joining on an odd row, to ensure that the edging works out as desired. Remember your st count will change if you added rows, each row adds two clusters. Mark the last ch 1 before join. <35>
- You will now be working in turned rounds
Round 20: Do not remove the st marker until you are instructed to in the edging rows. Ch 3 and turn, *YO, insert hook marked ch space, YO, pull through stitch, YO, pull through two loops on hook, repeat from * one time more, YO and pull through remaining three loops on hook (figure 1), Ch 1, *3dc cluster in the top of the next 3dc cluster, Ch 1, repeat from * to end, sl st into the top of the first cluster to join. <36>
Figure 1 (stitch marker NOT shown)
Rounds 21-32: Ch 3 and turn *YO, insert hook in the same cluster of your ch-3 (in essence these sts will be placed behind or before the ch-3 you just made), YO, pull through stitch, YO, pull through two loops on hook, repeat from * one time more, YO and pull through remaining three loops on hook. Ch 1, *3dc cluster in the top of the next 3dc cluster, ch 1, repeat from * to end, sl st into the top of the first cluster to join <36>.
- If you added rows to your triangle section, you will want to add the same number of rows to your cowl portion. You can also add rows as you like to make the cowl section taller. BE SURE YOU END ON A right side/ or even numbered row.
Fasten off and weave in all ends.
Row 1: Turn cowl so that point is towards you and you are looking at the join, or marked st. Attach yarn by sl st into the ch-1 space directly to the left of the marked st (figure 1A) Ch 1 and ex-sc in the same ch-1 space. *Ch 5, ex-sc directly before the next 3tr cluster (figure 1B) Repeat (figure 1C) from * until the cluster directly before the first cluster in Row 1 (this will be the chain that goes around the tip of the triangle), ch 7 (figure 1D) (you will now be working on the opposite side of the triangle), ex-sc in the space before the next 3tr cluster, *ch 5, ex-sc directly before the next 3tr cluster, repeat from * to space directly before the marked st (figure 1E). Do not join this round. Mark the second ch-5 space, stitched after the center ch-7. <34 ch-5 spaces and one ch-7 space. You will have 4 more ch-5 spaces for every 2 rows added to the triangle portion>
Row 2: Ch 1 and turn, ex-sc in the first ch-5 space, *[3dc, ch 2, 3dc] in the next ch-5 space, ex-sc in the next ch-5 sp, repeat (figure 2A) from * until you reach the marked space, [4dc, ch 2, 4dc] in the marked space, ex-sc in the next ch-5 space, [5dc, ch 2, 5dc] in the next/center ch-7, ex-sc in the next ch-5 sp, [4dc, ch 2, 4dc] in the next ch-5, ex-sc in the next ch-5, * [3dc, ch 2, 3dc] in the next ch-5 space (figure 2B), ex-sc in the next ch-5 space, repeat from * until the last ch-5 space, sl st into the first ex-sc to join.
Fasten off. Weave in all ends and wet block your finished cowl.
